Important Information

Mardi Himal trek is a short and relatively easy trek. However, it does come with a few challenges. The road from the Australian base camp is steep and rugged. The level of difficulty entirely depends on your physical and mental fitness. But you can build your muscle strength, make your body flexible by practicing light exercise, running, and jogging.

The trek to Mardi Himal is all about walking 5-6 hours per day for at least 1 week, which can make this trek slightly challenging. The trails are rugged, steep, maybe snowy in off-seasons. The maximum height in this trek is the base camp 4500m, with other high passes on the way. There is a high risk of mountain sickness. The primary cause of altitude sickness is a decreased oxygen in the atmosphere. It’s important to carry handheld oximetry. Oxygen saturation below 75% may be a risk.
